Anna Seward - April, 1789

from Letter from Anna Seward to Court Dewes, Esq., 3 May 1789, page 271:

Mrs Smith had a very good concert—her room was full—her friends were generous—and I never heard her voice in so much power. The music and songs were admirably selected, and seemed to please extremely. I wish you could have added to your bounty to her, the delight of your encouraging smile.
